Visitation Service was at:

Friday @ Carlsen Funeral Home in Le Mars, Iowa

Carlsen Funeral Home
Owner - Doug Carlsen
107 12th St. SE
P.O. Box 711
Le Mars, IA 51031
(712) 546-7107

Doug was a very nice person and helped Dad and the family a great deal! We spoke about 15 minutes at the visition on Friday night and talked about him living in Dallas for 4 or 5 years & working a Resthaven Funeral home in Hhe late 90's - which is still located at 635 and Greenview Drive. Mr. Carlsen and Brad knew each other well and worked with each other to make committments and other cemetery issues run smoother. I could tell Brad thought alot of Mr. Carlsen and I could see why. He was very honest and a very caring person! I would tell anyone that was looking for a honest, caring, and deciated funeral home - that Doug Carlsen is the Best for them!
